Ways to Give
You can donate online with one-time gifts or recurring automated payments on our church database system Breeze.
We are working on moving all electronic giving from our long-time online payment system, Vanco, to Breeze. Need help moving your giving from Vanco to Breeze? Contact the church office at email@example.com or 215-563-3980.
You can donate by text. The first donation by text takes a few minutes, but is fairly easy.
- Text the amount you'd like to give at (215) 709-5095.
- If you have donated by text before, you'll receive a text in response confirming that your gift has been received successfully and you're done.
- If it's your first time donating by text, you'll be sent a message that says, "It looks like you are a new giver; to begin: (link provided)." It will be a link to the church's online giving page. Clicking on the link you will be asked to supply their payment method (credit card, debit card, or bank account). This payment source will then be linked with you phone number so that, in the future, all you will need to do is text in the amount. You will not need to re-enter their payment information.
- If you didn't specify a fund by using one of the keywords (texting the amount you want to give and then the word "offering", "pledge", "building", "general", or "pastoral") donations will automatically be counted as "offering." You can only give to one fund with each text.
You can also still mail checks to the church office.
Feel free to reach out to Lauren Troop, our Communications and Office Coordinator, with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Pledging allows us to plan for a year of everything that we’ve come to love and expect about our church: our staff, our worship, our social justice programs, and so much more. All we ask is that you let us know how much you plan to give by Making a Pledge for the 2023 Year:
Read more in the Stewardship Frequently Asked Questions page about what that means!
Of course, if your circumstances change, you can change your pledge at any time. Commit to a total that is meaningful for you. Consider that this church spends about $2,000 per congregant per year to carry out our mission. If the right amount for you is more or less than that, find your target on the Suggested Giving Guide below.
Fulfill your pledge with automated online payments, text giving (text the amount you want to pay and the word “pledge” to (215) 709-5095), checks, or cash before December 31, 2023.
Questions? Contact Rev. Abbey, Business Administrator Norman Fouhy, and the Stewardship Team at email@example.com or call the church office at 215 563-3980.
